personally gas is how much you want to spend. example. you get 91 for your your engine will burn cleaner and burn the gas fir a longer distance but its more expensive on the other hand if you buy 87 it is cheaper but doesnt burn as well.. now on a higher performance engine like my matrix xrs it need 91 or high to be fuel effecient cause of its high compression. so in reality if you pushin rpms or a turbo you might want better gas but if its the commuter car with a grasshopper motor jus put somethin in to keep it goin
